A quite very actual terribibble teenager!
Worzel – an enormous Lurcher with ‘issues,’ now at the Terribibble Twos, and with an independent streak, matched only by the speed at which he can travel. Still learning to trust, and carrying the baggage of his abusive early weeks, Worzel's staging a teenage rebellion, to the consternation and embarrassment of his ever-patient family.
Things look like they just might be settling down for Worzel. After a year in his forever home, he's come to an almost peaceful truce with most of the cats, persuaded his Mum and Dad that ‘sit’ isn't essential, and – most importantly – established his place in the middle of the bed.
No longer a cautious puppy, Worzel has discovered an independent streak, and his somewhat dodgy recall has become non-existent. With his sense of adventure matched only by his speed, ponds, pheasants, and a bitch at the end of the lane, are all far, far more interesting than Mum. Worzel has reached the ‘terribibble teenage twos’ – that time in every dog's life when their owners wonder if the work, patience and dedication spent in the early days was pointless … and why everything their dog previously understood has suddenly become, at best, optional, but, more often, ignored!
